This is the third of the properties in The Last Word group of boutique hotels. Only 6 rooms but right on the beach and a wonderful experience. It was perfect for us since, at the end of two weeks in South Africa, this was the ideal place to rest and relax. Which we did. But, at the same time we...

We stayed here for 3 nights before heading to Cape Town. We arrived frazzled after an overnight flight but what a beautiful spot. Fabulous rooms and lovely staff, wonderfully relaxing. It is in a remote location so a car is essential and if you don't book dinner in the hotel the night before you want it, the area has very...

From the moment we arrived the wonderful staff at the Last Word ensured that every aspect of our stay was the best it could be. The rooms were immaculate, all the little extras that you might need were thought about. The bed was really comfortable with a view over the beach, lovely to wake up to. Nothing was too much...

This is a fantastic boutique hotel, right on a beautiful long beach. We stayed in an Elegant Suite which was simply stunning; tastefully decorated with calming hues of blues and cream which flowed through to the amazing white and blue of the sand and sky. A perfect 'get away from it all' hotel. The staff were all excellent - friendly,...

really nice small hotel, with good rooms, nice evening turn down service, and a lovely location right on the beach. No doubt about the great house!! The staff try, but honestly dont have the 5 star performance, it is like somethings missing on the bit that makes the difference. Price was high, and you would expect it to be perfect....

We chose The Last Word for a relaxing four night stay towards the end of a demanding itinerary. The view is just what we had expected but the room #5 probably surpassed our expectations. Service was outstanding. Overall, this is top quality accommodation. The only slight downside was the absence of restaurants nearby. The in-house dining is not of an...

We had an absolutely wonderful stay at this beautiful boutique hotel. It is right on the beach and has simply incredible views. We had room 1 which is a downstairs suite and I believe it is the largest room in the hotel. Although it is downstairs it still has amazing views over the beach and the sea and was wonderfully...

We just spent 2 nights here as part of our 2 week long honeymoon in South Africa, and with just one more night left in Cape Town this place was the perfect place to start to bring our honeymoon to a close. We had room 5 which was upstairs and the room was amazing. Clean, crisp and big... with an...

Beautiful setting, can't eat meal for constantly whale watching. Very relaxing place with spectacular views and lovely staff. Huge room with comfortable bed and large bathroom. Great to sit on balcony in sitting area and watch surfers.

Open the patio doors to your room and walk straight out to the dazzling white beach. We only saw a few walkers and some surfers so it felt like we had the beach to ourselves. The Last Word is Ahhhhhhh....submersion in total luxury and attentiveness on a small scale. Franie anticipated our every need. The decor was inviting and the...
